That's not quite what he said on TV... he threw his team under the bus, which is always shameful, but much worse in his case since he owes 6 titles to them.

Mercedes did not have any major issues, as Bottas was pretty even on race pace with Max. The problem was Lewis, who qualified far back and then didn't have the pace to beat Gasly; even worse, he had to watch his former arch enemy Vettel zoom out of the pits and beat him plus Gasly... the undercut was a desperate attempt because the driver wasn't working. So he has no right to complain about that either.

They have a right to be angry. Red Bull and Max have been Cheating with a bendy wing. And their bad example has negatively "influenced" Ferrari and others to do the same. Fans want Fair racing. Otherwise, what are we watching? Red Bull also threw money at Several Mercedes employees to jump ship. Did they also throw money at some of the employees who stayed at Mercedes? That Bottas pit?! And why was Hamilton's car Worse after "improvements?" Red Bull

has painted itself a villain. And a sport cannot sustain itself if the biggest alleged "winners" are cheaters. Red Bull is on the verge of ruining Formula 1. Where is FIA - or have they been paid

off, too?

we want competitive racing, we want a competitive constructor and driver championship.

not something that's decided 5 races into the season due to a car that is so far ahead, a competent driver can qualify second on the grid after only 3 days experience.
